to go forward and make the new discoveries in a time when nasa is dealing with budget cuts. >> you know, to us, we grew up, most of us in our company grew up watching apollo and it is an incredible legacy it is the equiv live nasa like lewis and clark. our job to find the edge and our job to do the industrial stuff and provide transportation and go out and help create the propellant and the materials to build. we want them to go to mars and do the fun stuff. we'll do the work and heavy lifting. >> how difficult of a mission will it be to get the resources from the asteroid. >> it will take a long time. even if you are mining it is 10-15 years. we'll start with the fire flies which are the little probes about the size of three laptops and robably 2015 and follow them with dragon flies. you might be picking up a theme there. they will bring back 25-50 pound and 2020 we'll send out the harvesters and they will bring back large multiton and put them in thoshit of the moon and that way if it falls down it will fall on the moon. >> it is groundbreaking work that you are doing and we'll keep c
much. >>> today's tweet of the day a sad reminder from nasa. the space organization tweeted this photo of the crew of the space shuttle "challenger" and wrote this, quote. the nasa family lost seven of its own on january 28th, 1986. today, 26 years later, we remember these brave men and women. what do we do when something that's hard to paint, really wants to be painted? we break out new behr ultra with stain-blocker from the home depot... ...the best selling paint and primer in one that now eliminates stains. so it paints over stained surfaces, scuffed surfaces, just about any surface. what do you say we go where no paint has gone before, and end up some place beautiful. more saving. more doing. that's the power of the home depot. behr ultra. now with advanced stain blocking, only at the home depot, and only $31.98 a gallon. we asked total strangers to watch it for us. thank you so much. i appreciate it. i'll be right back. they didn't take a dime. how much in fees does your bank take to watch your money? if your bank takes more money than a stranger, you need an ally. ally bank. your
it is going to be, and if it hits us what kind of damage is it likely to do? >> well that's what nasa scientists are really going to be watching on this pass. next month on the 15th, this asteroid is going to swing just 17,000 miles away from earth at much lower than the navigation satellites and, that we use every day for tour phones and our gps. now it is not going to hit this time around, but such a close encounter of a rock this big, something like, 40 meters, meters wide, 50 meters wide, they haven't had this kind of a close encounter of a rock this size before. nasa will be watching it. scientists and astronomers will be tracking after it swings by to see how this close fly-by will change the orbit when it does come around again. martha: in your terms, these things happen, you know, every thousands of years, several thousands years. when was the last time something like this did actually make contact and what was the impact? >> well to give you some asteroid is about the same size as the rock that exploded over siberia in 1908. that event that leveled00 of square miles of land,
and wreath laying. members of the family, friends and nasa officials were on hand. i had an opportunity to sit down and talk with commander rick husband's widow. the past ten years have been anything but easy. ". >> reporter: "colombia" was 200,000 feet up when the spacecraft began to fall apart. unknown to nasa and the team, the shuttle had been damaged. a chunk of foam had come off in liftoff and punctured the wing. at the command center, rick husband's widow was thinking the worse. >> i was thinking is that it? is that the end of rick's life. >> reporter: seven sastronauts died that morning leaving behind family and friends. in an instance, she was a single mom with two young children, and without rick, it was hard. >> god created families to have a mom and dad. and so when rick left, he was a great dad. an amazing man. it was challenging to raise them as a single mom. >> reporter: there has been healing evelyn says, but it is not done. >> it is a lifelong process. i don't think that pain ever completely goes away, and perhaps the greatest memorial to "colombia" sits across the water
already gone off into private consulting on flight safety because i was tired of the way nasa was decaying. but people who were still there told me they wished they had the warning. if they had ten days warning, early in the flight, had seen the hole in the wing. that would have mobilized all their energies and the whole country's and the world's energies. they would have tried to find ways to macgyver the wing and find something on board to stick in the whole. they had to find ways to get the other ship that was being canted down into space sooner. and if they didn't have enough air on board, they would have found ways to get other rockets from other countries. and there were some available, to throw fly canisters up into space where the shuttle could have chased them down and grabbed them before the shuttle's own power ran out. those things might have happened. in hindsight, the accident investigation board looked at them and couldn't really figure out any way that was surely going to work. but they would have tried. >> yeah. >> well, a story that surrounds american heros who were lost d

to back him up. he simply drove out to the boondocks to get to know the people of the philippines. nasa and the embassy like semiofficial americans do today. he went out to figure out what was really going on. the most important thing that he did was identified a great leader who could leave the philippines out of this with some support. that was ramon, a filipino senator when he encountered in. he was pushed to make him the defense minister and then the president's. he was this great leader who routed out a lot of the corruption which was causing people to turn away from the philippine government. he ended the brutality on the part of the filipino army which was causing villagers to flee into the hands of the hunts. he established clean elections, and he basically took away all of the in the logical appeal that they could possibly have. this was an incredibly effective strategy and is something i want you to think about today because, for example, in afghanistan i think afghanistan is really suffered over the course of the last decade by not having great leaders, not having, as the pre
on at least until the end of february, or until president obama names his successor. nasa paused today to remember the lives of seven astronauts who died ten years ago when space shuttle "columbia" broke apart in the air over texas. a few hundred people gathered at kennedy space center in florida, including family members and other astronauts. the accident happened as the shuttle was returning home with only 16 minutes left till landing. the brash, bold-talking former mayor of new york city, ed koch, died today of congestive heart failure at a hospital in new york. >> good morning. i'm ed koch, and i'm running for mayor. how am i doing? >> sreenivasan: ed koch was most at home on the streets of manhattan. a quintessential new yorker, the larger than life koch, who ran city hall from 1978 to 1989, was best known for shepherding new york out of financial ruin, restoring the city's finances through tough budget cuts, and improving its decaying subway system. but he insisted his biggest personal achievement was rallying new yorkers through the 1980 transit strike that crippled the city. st
. that is the big elephant in the room. >> they often say foreign aid, nasa, the department of education. i think that is a great idea for a number of reasons. people on the left say let's get out of these wars. that is a great idea for some people. you can do a lot of what people on the right and left want to do in terms of their pet cuts and it would do absolutely nothing to the long-term trajectory that we are on. we did a bus tour this year with family research council. we've teamed up on the money and valleys toward. what was interesting was respect to a lot of conservatives, and people were -- we spoke to a lot of conservatives, and people were willing to listen to us. i think it is an uphill battle, but one we will be forced into by the very nature of where we are. >> there is a passage in one of his great books where he says, the democrats are the party of santa claus. santa claus is a wonderful job a guy in a red suit who loves everyone and gives everybody presence. he gives you exactly what you want, all you have to do is ask. the republicans are the party of god. god is a stern fellow.
. gary, what are you expect a nasa governor makes its way up? >> s. moderate of these features you can expect with brian schweizer in his governorship. he can use whatever packard bell ontrack capital he has. he has a big month ahead of the work that will then come to his desk so he can do what his job is. >> is that what tonight is about, the tone and tenor is not too much due to this point, but setting a tone. a lot of it talked about in the previous three weeks since i got this session underway. >> the optimism in the last three weeks is genuine. i visited a couple times, almost quite a coincidence. i sense there's a good positive spirit always taken place there. and i think bullock thinks that it will keep that going. >> we hope you're right. preparing to deliver his state of the state address. as we said, about a 45 minute speech. of course quite a bit different. let's listen in now to governor steve bullock. >> now to present to you, the governor of the state of montana, the honorable steve bullock. [cheers and applause] [applause] [cheers and applause] >> lieutenant governor wal
passenger on a plane. nasa space shuttles never left earth without it. >> i tell you, i think we'd be lost without duct tape up here. >> a bandit even used it when he robbed a liquor store. it's enough to give diapers a dirty name. jeanne moos, cnn, new york. >> you know that dogs are going to smell something. >> that's what i was just thinking, why, oh why, did these women, did anyone think they were going to be able to walk through an airport with cocaine on their tushies? >> put some tape on. >> i'm sure we can all feel bad, but i don't think 9, $10,000 is worth going to jail for a very long time. no more duct tape. >> you can always follow what's going on here in "the situation room."
